What does it mean to follow Jesus’ way of the Cross and to place our trust in God for our true security, instead of in nuclear weapons that can destroy all life on earth? How do we find hope and courage to stand for God’s reign of love, justice and nonviolence in a world threatened by nuclear weapons and other perils? This new edition of The Risk of the Cross
will inspire Christians seeking answers to these questions today, just as the first edition helped Christians a generation ago. Each small-group session focuses on Jesus’ call to discipleship in Mark’s gospel —and links to information and inspiration for embracing the way of gospel nonviolence and taking action to avert nuclear annihilation and abolish nuclear weapons.
As worldwide commemorations were held August 6-9 marking the 75th anniversary of the US nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and calling for nuclear abolition, this book is a timely invaluable resource for all followers of Jesus committed to bringing about peace, social justice and a disarmed world.Click here
